In 2014, I had a stroke ultimately due to my heart. After rehab, I had a mechanical valve put in by Dr. Hassan in New Brunswick. I was given a second chance at everything! So here we go, doing therapy on everything on my right side and learning that YOU NEVER GIVE UP! I took up painting last year through Paint Nite to see if I could do it with my left hand.
